CMS Guide to Employment Issues in an M&A Transaction
Although M&A projects tend to be driven by corporate or tax lawyers, in many cases labour law issues have a significant influence on whether or not the deal is successful. Information/consultation/codetermination rights (of both employees and their representatives), as well as sophisticated case law relating to business transfers, may jeopardise the satisfactory completion of a transaction or create additional costs and sometimes even administrative fines or other liabilities.
